As we set up the Christmas decorations last week I was harshly reminded that Alex was 3yo and had never met Santa. This cannot be, how did this happen? So we promptly loaded the car up and took a drive to the mall *gasp* 4 days before Christmas. It was not nearly as packed as I thought it would be and we made it through the Santa line fairly quick. I guess the masses usually go shortly after Thanksgiving to get their orders in early. Alex behaved exheedingly well while waiting in line. If you've ever met Alex you can appreciate what a true Christmas miracle that was! He's not badly behaved, just full of uninhibited energy. When it was our turn in line there was no hesitation, both boys ran right up and plopped themselves into Santa's lap. I'm not sure how exactly the conversation went, but as you can see, it was serious business ;)
It was a very fun day and look forward to many more visits to the jolly fat man in the future!
